Merzmensch

Merzmensch

Born in Russia, living in Germany, thinking globally. I combine in my transmedia works human and machine input. Co-creation, co-existence, and creative symbiosis of these two life-forms (homo sapiens + AI) are the main factors inspiring me to new experiments and art approaches.

Art+AI Expertise

I'm experimenting with AI since first open models: Google Deep Dream, BigGAN, CycleGAN, StyleGAN2, GPT-2, GPT-3. In my artworks I apply an approach of Historian Avant-Garde (Dada etc.): to question current culture concepts and to discover new ways of storytelling & expression.

Work with AI

My digital works are presented in my Merzazine (Merzmensch.com). My theoretical works are published in various print and digital journals (Perspektive, Toward Data Science etc.).

Vision

AI enriches the culture and humanity with new possibilities and perspectives. AI is still not equal to an artist, but it is more than just a tool, like an assistant, co-author, inspiration, Muse. It augments our biased interpretation of reality with a surprising fresh view.
